I have been associated with MHR since 2006 while following Barbaro. I too was drawn to MHR through the owner, Stephanie Pierce and her genuine love for the plight of horses in need because of abandonment, neglect and abuse. I have visited MHR several times and have since become a friend and supporter of the ranch. Stepanie and her husband Rob care for and love these wonderful creatures like no other.
Recent times have been difficult for the economy and it always seems to be the animals that suffer the most. Financial support is essential and would be greatly appreciated. It is necessary that Stephanie and Rob often use their own funds. The horses always come first, always!
It is an honor to support MHR.
I found MHR while following Barbaro. I am not a horse racing fan but the plight of horses that have been mis -treated and/ or sold for "horse meat" tore at my heart. MHR takes the disabled, mis-treated, no longer wanted, only wanted for their urine type of horses and gives them a dignified home for the rest of their lives. The owners put the horses first and their lives second. Everything is done for the horses. They receive medical care and the best hay possible. I have been fortunate to watch the births of foals whose mothers were slated for slaughter because they were no longer wanted.
MHR has a great adoption policy and the horses are followed after an adoption takes place. No rescue horses are sold but rather adopted out with a "take back" clause written in the contract.
So many non profits ask for money to pay "salaries" of the non profit. This is not the case at MHR. All donations received go towards the care of these magnificant animals.
Review from Guidestar
I discovered Miracle Horse Rescue in 2006 or 2007 and have been an enthusiastic supporter ever since. I've visited the ranch in Pahrump several times and have had the honor of getting to know the owners/caretakers, Stephanie and Rob Pierce, very well, as well as other members of their family. They all have the magic touch in dealing with the various equines under their care. They know right away if one of the critters is ailing or injured and are dedicated to making sure they get appropriate care/food.
Times have been especially tough in Southern Nevada and the stories of people and animals suffering through it are heartbreaking. Sad to say that right now (at the end of September 2014) MHR is at capacity in order to support the current equine population. There have been many wonderful adoption stories over the years, but right now people are not adopting. In addition, many/most of the horses at MHR are not suitable for adoption because of age, physical or mental condition. But they all have what they need and will be taken care of very well until their times do come.
ANY financial support is very much appreciated as every dollar goes to the care and feeding of the equines and truly helps.
It's my privilege to support this wonderful organization and I hope you will too.
